Ruben Brovida is a musician, sound artist and performer.
He studied Electroacoustic Composition with Benjamin Thigpen at Ghedini conservatory in Cuneo (IT), and He graduated at Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (NL) where he discovered an inspiring and rewarding environment under the guide of Kees Tazelaar, Paul Berg, Raviv Ganchrow and Bjarni Gunnarson.
His work seek to explore complexity in sound synthesis and sound structures, the possibilities of multichannel system and programming concepts using traditional, electronic and digital instruments. He is working in the fields electroacoustic composition (fixed media and live electronics) and sound art (interactive sound installations and web art). As musician and composer he is part of several projects related to theatre, pop and dance music. As sound designer, He is collaborating with visual artists and with programmers creating audio-visual works and tablet applications. As composer and performer He is presenting his fixed media compositions and his free improvisation projects in various European festivals.
His musical exploration include the dance floor, through techno/house dj set and live set. He is playing in the underground club scene in Turin (IT) and in The Hague (NL), ranging from illegal rave parties, to clubs.
FillinTheGap is a duo composed by Ruben Brovida and Stefano Sgarbi. The project is rooted in the ongoing individual explorations of sonic and musical possibilities of electroacoustic devices and it is born throughout the encounter of the two. Such an encounter made new surprising explorations accessible like textures built up through superimposing layers of different natures and timbre digital transformations of analogically synthesised sonorities. The gap is the unsafe unconventional spot that may exist between two different worlds that, accepting the prescribed interconnection, finally look for a conscious compromise.
Amniotic Lymph is a duo composed by Ruben Brovida and Tiziano Teodori. They play as a free improvisation duo, exploring the possible relationship and development that arise from freely exchanged materials between the two. The exploration is carried on with a flute and a modular synthesiser that generate electronic sound and further process the flute. The flute is the object, the modular synth is the extension and the context.
Gah Ned is a musical tribal collective. It is based on live improvisation influenced by electronic dance, experimental and primal music. New and early technologies are combined in order to provide a groovy and cavernous experience
A list of 60 curators has been compiled representing the many artist initiatives, ensembles, galleries, festivals, educational departments that amongst others have contributed in recent years to shaping the local experimental audio scene. Each of these curators has been invited to in turn invite 4-5 artists/creators to participate in the project. The outcome of the project will be presented in September 2016.

I am Standing in A Radio is an electroacoustic work in collaboration with Marcello Ghilardi, based on extending and celebrating ideas present within the work of Alvin Lucier landmark composition, I am Sitting in A Room.
I am Standing in A Radio, replaces the physical space of a room with that of a radio receiver and furthermore replaces the original tape recorder with a digital delay line. Instead of routing the signal into only the space of a room, a radio transmitter broadcasts the acoustic information into the electromagnetic field (whereby the radio receiver re-receives the signal). The inherent feedback loop created by this process then become open to a variety of external influences, such us other electronic devices, nearby radio stations, and the electromagnetic field itself. The re-examination of Lucier classic conception of acoustic feedback loops, in combination with old and new technologies, is something that we see as a viable way to renew perspectives on how textural and structural relationships can emerge from engagement with established methods of processing sound.
